Springtime style spotted: The fashionistas of TCNJ were spotted this week sporting some pretty adorable outfits. Two of our particular favorites were completely different, but they both had “spring” written all over them.

Screen Shot 2014-05-08 at 6.40.00 PMSophomore communication studies major Rashida Ricketts was spotted wearing a fabulous all-white ensemble around campus this week. And while Rashida’s sophisticated white outfit doesn’t apply to the whole “no white before memorial day and after labor day” style “rule,” we think that her white-on-white outfit was perfectly balanced out by her springtime accessories. White is typically a summertime color. But if you’re like Rashida and can incorporate spring trends into your style, you will totally be able to rock this sleek look this season. Rashida finished off her polished look by adding a colorful, patterned clutch and gold accessories, including a fabulous statement necklace. You go, girl!

Pair this white crocheted Forever 21 cami with a matching pair of white jeans. We absolutely love these jeans, courtesy of Urban Outfitters, because of their fun lace up bottom. Take a note from Rashida and accessorize your outfit by adding a patterned bag or clutch and gold chunky jewelry.

Screen Shot 2014-05-08 at 6.44.01 PMContrasting Rashida’s super sweet look, we spotted sophomore psychology major Aleta Nadolny traipsing around in an edgy springtime ensemble this week.  Aleta’s outfit is comprised of a tribal print high-low skirt, a black tank, a pair of adorable moccasins and a beaded cross body bag. We asked Aleta what her favorite part about her outfit was and she said it was her tribal print skirt. She said, “I love this skirt — it’s one of my favorite buys, for sure, because the print is like an outfit in itself. It doesn’t really require much else.” And we couldn’t agree more! Keep it up, Aleta!

Tobi’s Low Ombre Skirt is fun, flirty and totally amazing for the springtime. To keep the tribal vibe of Aleta’s outfit, pair this skirt with these beautiful Diane von Fürstenberg’s Fisher Bootie, which include some killer fringe and braids. As for the perfect accessories? Choose this Free People Coin Crop necklace and this edgy Free People Steel Snake Armlet. This outfit is perfect for a day spent with family or friends enjoying the glorious spring weather.  And if you add a heel, this outfit is instantaneously date-night worthy!

Keep up the good work, ladies!

Sincerely,
From The Roberts
